Supporting Children of the Opioid Epidemic

This ECHO series aims to increase early intervention provider’s knowledge of strategies, skills, and resources for supporting the complex needs of children with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and their families. Each of the eight sessions builds on the content and information from the previous session, so it is highly recommended that participants commit to attending all 8 sessions. The training will be delivered via Zoom using a tele-practice model known as Extension for Community Health Outcomes or ECHO®. The ECHO Model ® will use adult learning principles and video conferencing technology to connect community providers in NH and ME with specialists at local centers of excellence in real-time case-based learning and mentorship. During the eight-week ECHO providers will build a community of practice with other professionals across disciplines. 

Please check back in the Spring of 2024 to see when we might be offering this training again.
